Nope. We’ve lived apart for about 2 years of our 3 years together, and we lived in separate apartments the first year of our relationship.

Good Luck with your class!

We moved in together after we were engaged, although that’s not specifically why we waited.

Yes, we lived together before getting engaged.

We had been dating for 2 years and 11 months when he proposed, and living together for 4 of those months.

I kinda think you’ll need additional information in order for this to be helpful.

  • Wedding: August 2010

Started dating – January of 2006

Moved in together – July of 2007 (still in college)

Got engaged – September of 2009

Got married – August 2010


Us living together had nothing to do with how long it took him to propose. We both wanted to be financially independent and have lived together for several years before getting engaged and it was just the right time for us.

I posted on the other thread but I’ll play!

Yes, we lived together LONG before getting engaged…

  • Started dating: May 2005

  • Started officially living together: September 2005 (I moved into my first apartment with my best friend a few weeks after we started dating so he stayed there a lot before we were “officially” living together.)

  • Engaged: June 2010

  • Will be married: October 2011

Like other PP’s have said, our waiting more than 5 years to get engaged had nothing to do with the fact that we lived together. It was more important for us to be financially stable than jump into marriage before we were ready. Our living together has done nothing but help us grow as a team. By the time we’re married, we’ll have more than 6 years of co-habitating under our belts so we’ll be able to tackle any issue that comes up.

I agree with the PP’s, start a poll. It will be a heck of a lot easier for you to analyze!
